I have just signed up in hopes of getting some help with my Paternal Grandfathers line. My grandfather Domenico Carnevale came over from Pico Italy in 1912. I have a copy of his marriage Certificate to Irene Dailey that lists Joseph (Giuseppe) Carnevale as father and Filomena Ruscetta as his mother. I have had no luck yet finding anything on Ancesry.com.
If anyone on this board can help me that would be greatly appreciated.
